This will be the first time I have actually been the steward as in previous years I have been the coordinator of Festival so had an overview of how things work. I am hoping to grow this section into being a big part of the Festival by increasing entries. I am passionate about craft and excited about the direction I hope this will take. I would like to encourage first time entrants to an exhibition because the feeling of seeing your lovingly crafted piece on display gives you a real buzz. I entered for the first time at the previous exhibition with an array of knitted cakes, watching the children looking and talking about them was such a thrill.

There are no restrictions on medium used in this section but is restricted to one metre in any direction. Craft as a category is largely defined by an item having a function and from any of a wide variety of types of work where useful and decorative objects are made completely by hand or by using only simple tools.
